Excluding a payment method from MercadoPago

1 0 1

Hi all! I couldn't get help from the payment gateway provider MercadoPago (absolutely horrible customer service), so I'm hoping someone can help me over here.

We integrated MercadoPago as 3rd party payment gateway, and I need to exclude Bank Transfers. We only want to accept payments via debit and credit cards.

I contacted MercadoPago's customer support, they said to disable Bank Transfers I need to write the following code:


"payment_methods": {
"excluded_payment_methods": [
"id": "bank_transfer"


I don't know where should I write this code, does anybody know where?

When I integrated MercadoPago, I simply created the service in https://www.mercadopago.cl/developers/, captured two tokens, and pasted them into Shopify (PDF attached with the views). That's why their answer to my request left me hanging, since I didn't write any code.

Here are some MercadoPago's resources in case they help:

Were you ever able to get this worked out with MercadoPago? I have a client who wants to use them for a store in Colombia. I'm unclear if the Shopify integration will take the customer to a different checkout experience or if the credit card capture is within the normal Shopify checkout flow. Do you happen to know this?


Also, my client wants to include 'PSE' as a bank payment method. Do you see this as an option in your integration?


Thanks in advance!
